DICTIONARIES  have  certainly  not  received  those  improvements,  either  in 
plan  or  execution,  which  their  increased  utility  has  rendered  essentially  neces- 
sary. The  difficulty  of  their  execution  sufficiently  accounts  for  this  tardiness 
in  their  advancement ;  and  the  most  ignorant  reader  may  often  discover  an 
error  in  what  relates  to  his  own  particular  branch  of  knowledge,  although  he 
may  be  very  unequal  to  appreciate  the  merits  of  any  other  subject.  But  the 
study,  or  rather  the  mode  of  acquiring  a  knowledge  of  languages,  has  made  as 
little  progress  as  the  compilation  of  dictionaries.  Grammarians  have  multiplied 
divisions,  and  involved  themselves  in  the  subordinate  details  of  grammar, 
without  considering  the  general  and  necessary  principles  of  speech,  the  depend- 
ence of  oral  language  on  the  organs  of  the  voice,  or  the  analogies  between  the 
modes  of  thinking,  the  sentiment,  and  the  language  of  a  particular  people. 
Hence  it  is,  that  persons  often  labour  for  years  to  become  familiar  with  the  sub- 
divisions and  classifications  of  words,  when  a  knowledge  of  what  may  be  truly 
called  the  spirit  of  a  language,  might  be  acquired  in  a  few  hours,  and  all  other 
knowledge  respecting  it  would  follow  as  a  consequence  of  imbibing  its  spirit. 
Whoever  considers  words  as  the  efforts  of  the  mind  to  communicate  its  ideas 
and  feelings,  will  soon  discover  the  universal  principles  of  language,  and  the 
great  similarity  of  all  tongues.  With  a  knowledge  of  these  general  elements, 
it  is  easy  to  recognise,  and  even  to  feel,  the  spirit  of  any  particular  language  or 
dialect ;  and  hence,  the  study  of  different  languages  becomes  not  only  simple 
and  easy,  but  really  instructive,  as  it  presents  incomparably  the  most  faithful 
pictures  of  all  mental  operations,  of  ideas  and  passions,  as  influenced  by  reli- 
gion, laws,  and  civil  polity,  or  climate.  Some  linguists,  indeed,  are  contented 
with  knowing  the  grammatical  distinctions  and  the  names  of  a  coat  or  a  book 
in  several  languages,  without  any  regard  to  the  extension  of  useful  knowledge, 
and  forgetting  that  a  mere  vocabulary  may  be  acquired  by  a  mechanical  effort 
of  the  memory,  independent  of  judgment.  Such  vocabularists  make  no  dis- 
coveries in  the  arts  or  sciences ;  they  never  extend  the  actual  boundaries  of 
our  knowledge,  still  less  do  they  meliorate  their  own  minds,  give  to  their  rea- 
son an  absolute  ascendency  over  their  passions,  or  expand  their  benevolent,  at 
the  expense  of  their  selfish  feelings.  To  obviate  such  pedantry  and  lettered 
uselessness.  has  been  one  of  the  chief  objects  of  the  present  edition  of  this  Spa- 
nish and  English  Dictionary,  which,  it  is  hoped,  contains  not  only  many  thou- 
sand more  words  than  are  to  be  found  in  the  most  copious  vocabularies,  but 
also  much  practical  and  useful  information,  correct  data  from  which  the  nature 


and  operations  of  the  human  mind  in  Spain  and  in  England  may  be  deduced ; 
more  facts,  principles  and  terms,  now  used  in  the  sciences,  arts,  manufactures, 
and  commerce,  than  in  any  similar  dictionary  hitherto  published,  and  likewise 
more  of  the  modern  words  in  the  polite  or  jfamiliar  conversation  of  both  coun- 

When  it  is  remembered  that  words  are  the  representatives  of  ideas,  and 
that  the  language  of  any  people  is  nearly  a  perfect  picture  of  what  passes  or 
exists  in  their  minds,  it  will  be  evident  that  a  complete  dictionary  must  be  a 
faithful  epitome  of  their  intellectual  labours ;   their  idiomatic  phrases  being  but 
abridged  metaphors,  or  modes  of  saying  one  thing  and  meaning  another,  the 
polite  metaphors  of  the  first  age  become  the  vulgarisms  of  the  second,  the  ob- 
solete language  of  the  third,  and  the  nervous  expression  of  the  fourth.     In  this 
manner,  taste,  fashion,  or  the  progress  of  civilization,  and  the  effect  of  external 
circumstances,  modulate  all  living  languages ;    and  every  generation  has  its 
circle  of  what  is  esteemed  polite  phraseology,  in  defiance  of  all  critical  dogmas, 
or  the  more  serious  denunciations  of  censors  and  moralists.     This  continued 
succession  of  popular  phrases  (for  the  words  of  conversation  in  one  age  gene- 
rally form  but  a  very  small  part  of  any  cultivated  language),  contributes  to  aug- 
ment the  interest  of  well-digested  dictionaries,  which  thereby  enable  the  writer 
of  taste  and  reflection  to  select  the  best,  the  most  harmonious,  the  purest,  and 
most  moral  phraseology  that  the  language  of  successive  ages  affords.     To  the. 
divine,  the  moralist,  and  the  metaphysician,  it  is  no  less  important ;  as,  words 
being  the  offspring  of  ideas  and  things,  the  existence  of  the  former  is  the  most 
unequivocal  demonstration  of  that  of  the  latter.     For  instance,  the  French  have 
very  justly  and  naturally  a  term  signifying  a  man  or  a  woman  with  a  bad 
breath,  (Pimais  and  Punaise  ;)  the  Spanish  and  English,  being  generally  devoid 
of  this  quality,  have  no  corresponding  term,   and  are  without  any  such  word. 
This,  however,  is  not  the  only  difference  between  the  languages  and  people  of 
those  countries.     With  every  French  thought  and  word  something  of  colour 
and  stage  effect  is  associated ;    it  is  the  spirit  of  the  people  and  of  their  lan- 
guage, while  that  of  Spain  and  England  is  metaphysical,  or  mere  abstract  truth 
and  reason.     On  the  other  hand,  it  must  be  admitted,  that  the  philanthropic 
observer  of  men  and  manners  will  view,  with  profound  regret,  the  super- 
abundance of  Spanish  epithets  injurious  to  women,  and  feel  perhaps  disposed 
to  consider  the  virtue  of  females  as  the  fairest  criterion  of  national  morality. 
However  this  may  be,  there  is  evidently  more  wisdom  in  raising  than  depre- 
ciating the  moral  qualities  of  those  who  necessarily  teach  the  first  rudiments 
of  knowledge,  and  certainly  modulate  the  character  of  all  mankind.     Contrary 
also  to  the  vulgar  and  even  traditional  opinion  in  Britain,  there  is,  in  fact,  no 
radical  and  appropriate  Spanish  term,  which  exclusively  and  forcibly  conveys 
the  same  idea  as  the  English  word  jealousy.     Nevertheless  the  Spaniards  have  , 
evinced  great  wisdom  in  carefully  guarding  their  language  and  sentiments  from 
the  deteriorating  influence  'of  French  corruption.     In  this  respect,  their  con- 
duct presents  a  noble  example  to  the  modern  English,  who  really  seem  to  be 
almost  ashamed  of  their  mother  tongue,  and  to  have  nearly  forgotten  that  their 
radical  langflage  is  as  old,  and  incomparably  better  than  that  of  France.     The 
ashicnable  and  vulgar  foplings  of  the  day  have  expelled  the  s  and  t  final 
almost  entirely  from  their  jargon,   and  given  an  Anglo-Gallic  pronunciation  to 
plain  English  words,  that  is  more  analogous  to  the  hideous  accents  of  unfortu- 
nate maniacs  than  the  tones  of  rational  beings.     Happily  this  practice  is  still 
confined  to  the  ignorant  and  comparatively  illiterate  ;    but,  however  pity  may 
>e  extended  to  the  prude  and  the  coquette,  whose  imbecile  affectation  may 
abandon  the  definite  and  modest  term  shift,  for  the  silly,  vague,  and  not  very 
delicate  one  chemise   (camis   from  xajx/rtov  would  be  genuine  English) ;  it  i; 


impossible  to  have  any  other  fee-ling  than  that  of  ineffable  contempt  for  the 
breeched  animal,  who  in  the  British  metropolis  has  lost  his  hat  to  find  a  cha- 
peau.     Such  things  require  the  admirable  pen  of  Cadalso,  in  his  Eruditos  a  la 
Violeta.     This  absurdity  is,  indeed,  become  so  enormous  and  offensive,  as  to 
astonish  and  perplex  strangers,  while  it  excites  the  liveliest  regret  in  the  minds 
of  reflecting  natives.     It  has  been  attempted  to  palliate  this  disgrace,  by  alleg- 
ing that  the  English  language  is  chiefly  derived  from  the  French.     Some  ety- 
mologists, it  is  true,  have  read  English  through  French  spectacles,  and  indulg- 
ed their  indolence,  or  masked  their  ignorance,  by  producing  parallel  words 
from  the  French.     As  to  Home  Tooke,  the  most  visionary  and  illogical  of  all 
etymologists,  whatever  is  correct  or  good  in  his  work,  all  his  pretended  disco- 
veries of  the  E-TTsa  •TrrsgosvTa,  may  be  traced  to  what  Spanish  writers  (Aldrete, 
Mayans,  &c.)  have  related  of  the  manner  in  which  the  Goths  corrupted  the 
Latin  in  Spain ;  his  ribaldry  and  blasphemy  are  his  own ;  but  his  errors  have 
been  exposed  with  equal  truth  and  eloquence  by  Professor  Dugald  Stewart. 
There  is,  however,  no  notion  more  erroneous  or  unfounded,  than  that  of  the 
English  tongue  being  derived  from  the  French,  to  which  it,  correctly  speaking, 
owes  nothing  whatever.     The  most  cursory  investigation  must  satisfy  every 
inquirer,  that  the  grand  basis  of  the   English  is  the  Anglo-Saxon,  mixed  with 
Latin  and  Greek,  which  were  popular  languages  in  England  at  two  different 
periods  of  the  dark  ages.     Some  barbarous  law  terms,  and  a  few,  but  very  few, 
other  words,  have  been  borrowed  from  the  French,   while  the  genius  and  spirit 
of  the  language  still  bear  the  noble  features  of  their  Saxon  and  classic  origin. 
This   was   universally  admitted,    till  Bolingbroke,  and  his  follower  Pope,  in- 
troduced the  French  style  into  prose  and  rhyme  ;    the  former  moralized  to  ob- 
literate the  remembrance  of  his  treason,  and  the  latter  rhymed  solely  in  imita- 
tion of  Boileau.     Their  example  has  been  adopted  by  Gibbon,  who  aped  Vol- 
taire ;  but  it  is  the  elephant  imitating  the  monkey;    his  infidelity  and  occa- 
sional obscenity  betray  his  extreme  want  of  morality  and  judgment,  and  suit 
the  Gallic  tinsel  of  his  monotonous  jargon.     In  the  voluminous   writings  of 
Gibbon,  it  is  perhaps  impossible  to  find  one  sentence  of  pure  English  ;  and  the 
foreigner,  who  wishes  to  have  a  correct  knowledge  of  the  language,  will,  it  is 
hoped,  never  read  a  page  either  of  Bolingbroke  or  Gibbon  in  their  English 
form.     Between  the  Spanish  and  English  there  is  much  more  similarity  than 
between  the  French  and  English;  and  this  Dictionary  will  furnish  satisfactory 
evidence,  that  both  nations  adopted  the  same  Latin  words,  with  the  same  sig- 
nifications, into  their  vernacular  dialects.     Several  of  those  words  are  marked 
disused  in  both  countries,  some  others  are  printed  in  capitals,  while  whole 
families  of  words  are  still  used,   as  indagar*  from  indagare,  to  indagate.     The 
judicious  traveller,  who  has  studied  anatomy  and  physiognomy,  and  visited  the 
inhabitants  in  the  valleys  of  Aragon  and  other  northern  provinces  of  Spain,  and 
who  has  also  observed  the  natives  of  the  Isle  of  Wight,  and  the  inhabitants  in 
the  valleys  of  the  South  Downs,  will  be  at  no  loss  to  discover  the  most  unequi- 
vocal evidence  of  indentity  of  origin,  and  instantly  conclude,  that  a  branch  of 
the  same  race  of  Saxons  (the  Getae),  who  invaded  the  south-west  of  England, 
must  also  have  extended  themselves  to  Spain.     The  physical  traits  of  similarity 
are  as  striking  as  those  of  the  ancient  Greeks,  whose  descendants  still  appear 
in  the  valleys  of  Granada.     The  inquisitive  reader  may  perhaps  feel  disposed 
to  pursue  this  subject  much  farther  than  it  is  here  expedient.     A  writer  in  the 
Archaeologia,  .published  by  the  Society  of  Antiquaries  of  London,  has  traced 
the  first  inhabitants  of  Britain  to  the  Iberians ;    but  it  is  easier  to  frame  in- 
genious theories  than  to  collect  facts  and  make  correct  observations.     The 
Saxon  race  is  much  less  equivocal. 

In  order  to  facilitate  the  acquisition  of  English,  it  may  here  be  proper  to 


notice  its  significant  terminations,  which  somewhat  exceed  a  hundred.  The 
terminations  or  affixes  an,  in,  ine,  and  ana,  have  a  possessive  import,  and  signify 
belonging  to,  as  partizan  is  belonging  to  a  party ;  ee  annexed  to  a  verb  mark 
its  personal  object,  patient,  or  result ;  er  to  adjectives  signifies  before  or  supe- 
rior ;  but  when  cr,  or,  and  our,  are  added  to  words  signifying  action,  they 
denote  the  person  who  acts ;  as  from  love,  lover  :  they  also  become  abstract 
nouns  or  general  names  of  things,  as  from  the  Saxon  mojifc,  death,  we  have 
murther  or  murder,  and  we  was  formerly  written  our,  as  plesour,  now  pleasure, 
from  the  Latin  placco,  and  not  the  French  plaisir.  Ess  and  ix  are  the  only 
feminine  terminations,  as  ster  is  used  to  both  sexes ;  the  Saxon  ric  or  rick 
marks  possession  or  dominion  ;  en  was  the  Saxon  plural,  still  used  in  children, 
&c. ;  it  also  signifies  made  or  consisting  of,  as  golden  ;  and  finished,  as  proven, 
proved;  to  shorten,  i.  e.  to  make  shorter:  the  difference  between  ed  of  the  past 
tense,  and  en  of  the  participle,  is,  that  in  the  former  the  action  is  considered,  in 
the  latter  its  effects  on  the  object ;  gkt  is  the  same  as  ed,  finished,  and  the 
latter  in  adjectives  often  becomes  id ;  the  adjective  affixes  ant,  ent,  and  sub- 
stantive ones  ance,  ence,  and  end,  denote  being  or  state,  as  abundant  is  the 
quality  of  being  or  existing  in  abundance ;  and  friend  from  pjieonbe,  loving ; 
hence  the  cause  of  its  being  still  pronounced  frend  ;  ing  and  ion  simply  indicate 
the  existence  of  quality  or  action,  and  ment  or  mony  is  of  the  like  import ;  i/e, 
al,  and  ar,  are  adjective  terminations  expressing  quality  or  disposition  ;  when 
al  is  added  to  a  verb,  it  is  the  same  as  ing  or  ion  ;  able  and  ible  signify  having 
or  possessing  any  quality  or  power ;  ic,  ick,  ique,  usque,  imply  kind,  division,  or 
similarity ;  ical  is  al  and  ic  ;  ch  and  ish  have  the  same  meaning,  but  the  latter 
is  generally  a  diminutive  ;  ide,  ulous,  incle,  and  et,  are  also  diminutives  ;  oon  is 
an  augmentative ;  y  is  derived  from  the  Saxon  3,  and  corresponds  to  the  Latin 
ia ;  Itj,  like,  and  ably,  indicate  similarity ;  ary,  cry,  and  ory,  express  sort  or 
kind  ;  kin,  kind,  ling,  and  let,  denote  family  or  relation,  but  the  two  latter  are 
also  diminutives ;  ous,  eous,  wise,  and  ways,  express  kind,  or  manner  of  the 
word  to  which  they  are  affixed  ;  on  makes  a  personal  substantive  of  similarity, 
as  patron  from  pater,  father ;  full  or  ful  are  self-evident ;  less  means  want  or 
dismissal ;  age  and  ish  imply  act,  effect,  or  result,  but  age  also  signifies  space 
of  time  and  price  ;  ise  or  ize  are  verbal  terminations ;  ism  denotes  collection  of 
effects  or  classes  of  action ;  ist  and  ite,  personal  agent ;  we,  if,  mean  causing  or 
producing ;  ate,  ated,  ating,  ation,  ator,  atory,  and  ace,  all  imply  action  or  agent ; 
el  or  le,  annexed  to  verbs,  make  them  frequentatives,  as  to  prate,  to  prattle,  £c. 
ad  or  ade  means  mass  or  heap  ;  cide  and  cidal  are  to  kill ;  ard  denotes  nature, 
species,  kind,  or  manner;  ward  means  looking  to,  or  in  the  direction  of; 
hearted  is  applied  to  the  feelings  or  passions,  headed  to  the  mind  and  judg- 
ment ;  stead  and  step  indicate  place ;  dom,  condition  of  existence ;  head,  hood, 
and  chief,  mean  principal  and  state  ;  ship,  skip,  or  scape,  also  denote  head  or 
chief;  ce,  cy,  ity,  tude,  and  th,  are  affixes  to  nouns  of  generality;  fy  is  to  make, 
faction,  the  act  of  making,  and  sometimes  the  thing  made,  as  petrifaction  ;  ign 
expresses  quality ;  ow  is  of  the  kind  ;  some  and  sum  mean  quantity  ;  and  the  s, 
so  much  abused  by  Gallic  affectation,  is  properly  an  adverbial  affix,  as  back- 
ward is  the  quality  of  an  action,  backwards  the  manner  of  it ;  stall  and  still  are 
to  place ;  tide  and  time  are  synonymous  ;  w  is  interchangeable  with  g,  as  guile 
and  wile.  As  to  the  prefixes,  they  are  chiefly  Latin  or  Greek  prepositions, 
and  have  nothing  peculiar.  Un  is  of  Saxon  origin,  and  is  not  merely  a  nega- 
tive, but  means  to  reverse  the  action  of  the  verb  to  which  it  is  prefixed.  En 
in  composition  becomes  em,  in,  ig,  il,  im,  or  ir,  according  to  the  letter  which 
immediately  follows  it.  Many  writers  confound  the  prefixes  en  and  in,  although 
the  latter  properly  signifies  situation  or  place,  and  is  also  a  negative  ;  thus,  to 
inquire,  means  to  seek  in  or  search  the  place,  and  to  enquire  only  signifies  to

make  search.  Farther  explanations  on  this  head  may  be  found  in  the  gram- 
mars of  Lovvth,  Grant,  and  Allen,  and  the  Analytical  Introduction  of  Booth. 

The  Spanish  terminations  are  easily  acquired.  It  was  observed  by  Mayans, 
that  many  Spanish  substantives  and  adjectives  are  Latin  ablative  cases  singular, 
or  accusatives  plural,  as  ars,  arte,  artes ;  prudens,  prudeute,  prudentes.  The 
d,  /,  «,  r,  s,  xy  and  z,  are  the  only  consonants,  which  can  terminate  a  word, 
although  b,  c,  d,  <JT,  I,  w,  n,  p,  r,  s,  t,  x,  and  z,  may  end  a  syllable;  c,  /,  n,  r,  in 
a  few  words  admit  of  being  doubled,  and  also  the  vowels  a,  e,  i,  and  o,  but 
more  rarely.  The  organs  of  speech  render  6,  p,  w,  and  /,  and,  c,  #,  j  and  q  in- 
terchangeable in  both  languages  ;  in  English  s  and  z  are  commutable  in  verbal 
terminations.  The  Latin  t  is  almost  always  changed  in  Spanish  for  c  or  2,  as 
gratia,  gracia,  ratio,  razon ;  the  Latin  mutes  are  likewise  omitted,  as  scicntia, 
ciencia ;  in  other  cases  an  e  is  prefixed  for  the  sake  of  euphony,  as  species 
makes  especie.  The  Latin  adjectives  in  bilis  obey  the  same  law  in  Spanish 
and  English,  and  make  ble  ;  au  is  changed  to  o,  as  aurum,  oro  ;  i  to  e,  as  infir- 
mus,  enfermo ;  u  to  o,  as  musca,  mosca ;  ovum,  huevo ;  /  is  converted  into  h,  as 
facere,  hacer ;  m  into  n,  as  lympha,  linfa ;  Latin  infinitives  become  Spanish  by 
dropping  the  final  e,  as  ponere,  poner,  dormire,  dormir,  stare,  estar ;  some  words 
are  also  augmented,  by  that  spirit  of  magnanimity  which  animates  every  Spa- 
niard, and  which  was  judiciously  observed  by  Smith  in  his  Theory  of  Moral 
Sentiments ;  as  from  spes  comes  esperanza,  cor,  corazon ;  and,  as  a  proof  of 
their  delicacy  and  temperance,  comedere  is  reduced  to  comer.  These  literal 
mutations  will  be  evident  to  the  classical  reader,  and  to  others  any  further 
notice  of  them  would  be  useless. 

It  remains  to  say  something  of  the  great  and  numerous  additions  to  the 
volumes  now  submitted  to  the  public.  Above  ten  whole  sheets  have  been  added 
to  the  recent  editions  of  this  Dictionary,  which,  with  the  additional  matter 
gained  by  compressing  the  definitions  so  as  to  have  few  short  lines,  and  a 
greater  length  of  page,  as  well  as  other  alterations  in  the  mode  of  printing,  aug- 
ment the  contents  to  nearly  twenty  sheets  more  than  the  preceding  editions. 
In  the  Spanish-English,  there  are  above  3000  entirely  new  articles  introduced  ; 
in  the  English-Spanish  above  12,000.  Besides  these  additions,  in  both  parts, 
it  will  be  found  that  very  few  of  the  old  definitions  have  been  allowed  to  pass, 
without  either  correction  or  the  addition  of  many  new  and  appropriate 
synonyms,  several  thousand  of  which  are  not  to  be  found  in  any  Spanish  or 
English  dictionary  yet  published,  or  indeed  in  any  dictionary  of  two  languages, 
which  has  fallen  under  the  observation  of  the  writer.  The  corrections  have 
been  made  after  carefully  consulting  the  writings  of  father  Isla,  Capmany, 
Jovellanos,  &c.  and  some  Spanish  living  authors  of  established  reputation.  In 
some  words  the  reader  will  observe  definitions  in  both  parts  diametrically 
opposite  to  what  are  given  in  almost  all  other  dictionaries ;  he  is  not  therefore 
to  conclude  that  they  are  wrong,  but  to  examine  facts,  when  he  may  perhaps 
discover  their  general  accuracy,  and  that  they  are  derived  from  diligent 
research.  It  rarely  happens,  as  in  the  present  case,  that  compilers  of  dictiona- 
ries are  equally  well  acquainted  with  words  and  with  things  :  it  is  the  want  of 
the  latter,  and  more  arduous  kind  of  knowledge,  which  occasions  the  defective- 
ness  of  all  dictionaries.  In  this  edition,  it  is  believed,  more  terms  of  science, 
arts,  manufactures,  and  commerce,  have  been  introduced  than  were  ever  before 
attempted  in  a  dictionary  of  two  languages,  and  even  more  than  exist  in  any 
English  dictionary  extant. 

Important  political  circumstances  have  recently  happily  combined  to  promote 
an  extended  intercourse  between  England  and  Spain — both  European  and 
American.  The  prejudices  of  religion,  which  had  hitherto  interdicted  the  dis- 
semination of  our  literature,  are  rapidly  vanishing  before  the  edicts  of  a  more

liberal  government  in  the  old  country,  whilst  the  separation  of  Spanish  America 
from  its  parent  state  cannot  but  infuse  new  life  into  our  commercial  enterprise, 
and  bring  us  more  immediately  in  contact  with  a  country,  the  natural  resources 
of  which  are  boundless  ;  and  with  a  people,  who  have  manifested  the  strongest 
desire  to  cultivate  the  friendship,  and  to  repose  the  fullest  confidence  in  the 
known  integrity  and  honour,  of  the  British  nation.  That  this  copious  Diction- 
ary of  the  languages  of  these  countries  may  be  the  medium  of  facilitating  the 
communication,  and  of  promoting  the  best  interests  of  each,  is  not  only  the 
earnest  desire,  but  is  also  the  certain  anticipation,  of  the  Editors. 

Lastly,  the  Editors  regret,  from  particular  circumstances,  they  are  not  per- 
mitted to  return  publicly  their  thanks  to  many  Spanish  and  other  gentlemen, 
who  have  generously  assisted  their  researches,  either  by  the  loan  of  books,  or 
by  written  communications.  To  James  Edwards,  Esq.  of  Binstead,  Isle  of 
Wight,  they  are  however  happy  in  having  this  opportunity  of  making  their 
grateful  acknowledgments  for  the  very  handsome  manner  in  which  he  favoured 
them  with  some  valuable  books  from  his  well-chosen  library,  and  which  they 
believe  to  be  only  a  small  testimony  of  his  friendship  to  literature,  and  of  his 
zeal  for  the  diffusion  of  useful  knowledge. 


The  sm.  sf.  mean  substantives  masculine  and 'feminine ;  5.  implies  that  the  word  is  of  both  genders ;  va. 
vn.  IT.  verbs  active,  neuter,  and  reflective  or  reciprocal ;  a.  adjective  :  ad.  adverb  ;  pron.  pronoun ;  pa.  par- 
ticiple active.  The  contractions  in  parentheses  are  the  first  syllables  of  terms  of  science  and  arts,  or  names 
of  provinces  where  the  word  is  most  used,  as  (Anat.)  Anatomy,  (And.)  Andalusia,  (Ant.)  Antiquated,  (Ar.) 
or  (Arasr.)  Aragon,  (Arq.)  Architecture,  (Art.)  Artillery,  (Aum.)  Augmentative,  (Bot.)  Botany,  (Met.)  Meta- 
phor or  Metaphorical ;  and  so  of  the  others.  Verbs  active,  neuter,  or  reciprocal  are  not  repeated,  but  marked 
thus,  AFIRMAR,  va. — m. — vr.  When  a  word  is  substantive,  adjective,  and  adverb,  it  is  marked  thus,  MAL, 
sm. — a. — ad.  The  masculine  and  feminine  terminations  0,  and  A,  and  diminutives  ico,  ICA  ;  ILLO,  ILLA  ; 
ITO,  ITA  ;  UELO,  UELA,  cannot  be  misunderstood.  The  words  printed  in  capitals,  like  ADULTERATED, 
are  such  as  have  been  derived  from  the  .Spanish,  but  which  have  hitherto  either  eluded  the  researches  of  English 
etymologists,  or  been  erroneously  ascribed  to  another  source  :  the  number  might  have  been  increased  had 
it  been  more  essential.  In  the  Second  Volume  the  English  words  are  accented  so  as  to  convey  some  idea 
of  their  pronunciation.  Thus,  when  a  vowel  is  doubled  and  pronounced  short,  the  accent  is  placed  on  the 
first,  as  in  brfaclies,  pronounced  breches ;  when  pronounced  long,  the  accent  is  on  the  latter  vowel,  as  in 
breeding ;  bearLike,  pro.  barelike ;  teast&ie,  pro.  beestlike ;  blood,  pro.  blud ;  bloom,  pro.  blume,  &c. 


DE    LAS 


Espanol  e  Ingles — Spanish  and  English. 

In  the  Spanish  language,  has  but  one 
sound,  and  is  pronounced  as  the  open 
English  a  in  master. 

A'. prep,  which  signifies,  to,  in,  at,  according  to, 
on,  by,  for,  and  of;  as  voy  d  Madrid,  I  am 
going  to  Madrid  ;  d  la  Inglcsa,  in  the  En- 
glish fashion  ;  d  oriente,  in  the  east :  jugar  d 
los  miypes,  to  play  at  cards  :  d  las  ocho,  at 
eight  o'clock  :  d  pnieba,  de  bombas,  bomb- 
proof: d  ley  de  Castilla,  according  to  the  law 
of  Castile  :  el  vino  d  pie,  he  came  on  foot ; 
quie,n  d  hierro  mata,  d  hierro  muere,  he  who 
kills  by  the  sword,  dies  by  the  sword  ;  das  d 
dos,  two  by  two  :  d  como  vale  tafancga  ?  d 
trcinla  realcs,  for  how  much  a  bushel  ?  for 
thirty  reals  ;  estc  libra  va  d  Pedro,  this  book 
is  for  Peter  :  este  vaso  hnele  d  vino,  this  glass 
smells  of  wine  :  real  de  d  ocho,  piece  of  eight, 
V.  Real. 

A1  coalesces  with  the  masculine  article  el,  and 
instead  of  d  cl,  as  anciently  used,  al  is  now 
written,  as  al  rey,  to  the  king  ;  al  papa,  to 
the  pope.  This  prepositive  article  is  also  used 
before  the  infinitive  mode  of  verbs,  as  al  ama- 
nccer,  at  the  break  of  day  ;  al  parecer,  ap- 
parently. A1  is  equivalent  to  the  limit  or  end 
of  any  place  or  time,  d  la  cosccha  pagard,  I 
shall  pay  at  harvest-time  ;  desde  aqui  d  S. 
Juan,  from  this  to  St.  John's  day  ;  me  llegaba 
el  agua  d  la  garganta.  the  water  was  up  to 
my  throat.  Occasionally  it  implies  towards 
or  opposite,  as,  sefue  d  ellos,  volvid  la  cara 
d  tal  parte,  being  towards  or  opposite  them, 
he  turned  his  face  to  such  a  part. 

A1  sometimes  signifies  the  motive  or  principle, 
as,  d  instancid  de  la  villa,  at  the  request  of 
the  city  :  d  quc  proposito  ?  to  what  purpose  ? 
It  also  serves  to  express  distributive  numbers ; 
as,  d  perdiz  por  barba,  a  partridge  a-head.  It 
is  likewise  a  mere  explicative  in  some  phrases 
joined  to  a  pronoun,  as,  d  mi  me  consta,  la 
verdad,  I  know  the  truth,  or,  the  truth  is  evi- 
dent to  me  ;  yo  me  culpo  d  mi,  I  blame  my- 
self, or,  I  take  blame  to  myself;  tu  te  alabas 
d  ti,  thou  praisest  thyself;  vamos  d  pasear, 
let  us  take  a  walk.  Before  the  infinjtive 
mode,  and  at  the  beginning  of  a  sentence,  it 
has  sometimes  a  conditional  sense,  as,  d  dccir 
verdad,  if  I  must  speak  the  truth. 

A1.  This  preposition  governs  almost  all  parts  of 
speech,  whether  substantives,  adjectives,  pro- 


nouns,  or  verbs  ;  d  los  hombres,  to  men  :  de 
bueno  a  malo,  from  good  to  bad  :  d  mi,  d  ti, 
a,  vosotros,  to  me,  to  thee,  to  you  :  a  jugar, 
to  play.  It  sometimes  points  out  the  person 
in  whom  the  action  of  the  verb  terminates, 
and  is  placed  before  the  accusative  case,  as 
amo  d  Pedro,  I  love  Peter. 

A1  is  still  used  in  some  phrases  instead  of  par, 
en,  sin,  para  and  la  ;  and  in  obsolete  writings 
for  con  and  de.  In  composition  it  serves  to 
convert  substantives  and  adjectives  into  verbs, 
as  iibocar  from  boca,  ablandar  from  blando, 
&c.  Formerly  it  was  prefixed  to  many  words, 
as  abaxar,  amatar,  &c.  but  being  redundant 
these  words  are  now  written  baxar,  matar, 

A1  is  frequently  used  adverbially,  as,  d  deshora, 
unseasonably  ;  d  diferencia  de  csto,  contrary 
to  this  ;  d  proposito  de  eso,  in  consequence  of 
that ;  d  la  verdad,  truly  ;  d  lo  menos,  at  least ; 
d  sabiendas,  knowingly  ;  d  veccs,  sometimes ; 
d  vista  de  ojos,  evidently,  at  a  glance.
